Puma Exploration (TSXV:PUM) announced it has commenced a 1,500 meters drill program at its 100% Turgeon Copper-Zinc VMS deposit in New Brunswick.

As quoted in the market news,

The drill program is designed to define the extents of the new high grade Zinc massive sulphide lens grading 10% Zn over 2.7 meters intersected during the last drilling operation and to validate the VMS model with the discovery of higher grade Copper Stockworks.

The recent successful drill program included the discovery of high grade Zinc massive sulphide zone grading 5.66% Zn, 0.38% Cu and 2.3 g/t Ag over 6.8 metres starting downhole at 219.1 meters and includes 10.05% Zn and 0.23% Cu over 2.7 metres within a 292 metre intercept of an anomalous zinc mineralization halo that grades 0.32% Zn (Drill Hole FT14-05).

Marcel Robillard, President of Puma Exploration, stated:

The main objective of the current program is to discover additional higher grade Cu-Zn mineralization associated with the typical VMS geological model in the Dragon Zone area, in particular, Cpy Stockwork mineralization over significant thickness which could be related with the recently discovered massive sulphide intercepts and proving-up the presence of entire new VMS system.
